I am a windows user and venturing into the realm of the unknown - Linux.
I am looking to build a box that will serve as a Ubuntu Linux box where I can run Atomic Toolkit in a docker. This should give me plex, news group downloading and house all my movies, tv shows and photos.
To house all that data, I need to replace my aging Synology nas. Mine is 10 years old and is slow and outdated. I thought to use the same Linux box to do that and use Freenas. I am not sure that freenas is possible since it is a OS and not a program that runs on Linux. So looking for suggestions here as well.
- Create a 40+ TB array. Want 4 main disks and with 2 redundancies right now.
- Ability to stream loads of media in 4K to TVs in the house.
- Ability to transcode for sending movies to iPads and share with family.
- Low power and super quiet.
Any suggestions for the build (all comps).
Anyone know if FreeNas will work or do I need a different raid solution given I need to run Linux on this.
